Publisher's Summary

Nothing is more dangerous than falling in love….

When Caleb Devereaux's younger sister is kidnapped, the scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot. While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can.

Deeply remorseful for the pain he's caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie's vanished forever, she reappears. She's in trouble and she needs his help. Now Caleb will risk everything to protect her - including his heart….

    "SADLY, IT LEFT ME DISAPPOINTED & DEPRESSED"

    I'm a huge fan of Maya Banks and my library is filled with many fantastic 5 star books written by her with glowing reviews so I can't believe and am shocked that I'm giving one of her books a 2 star rating..... but sadly that's how I feel about this listen.

    There were just too many things that stacked up against it.... I didn't feel the chemistry between the H/H, the sex scenes were very weak for Maya Banks, there was a lack of descriptions, heroine flees without anything to her name and yet in the next scene she's showering and changing and one minute the hero is wanted by the police then, without any details, everything's over and he's in a log cabin. The flow was choppy, rushed and the romance element was missing too. Nor did I feel the loving family unity at all.

    Worth a credit? The psychic element, mystery, thriller part and twist was good but the bad unfortunately outweighed the good and even the very good narration couldn't save this listen for me. So NO, IMO, not the usual Maya Bank's creditworthy listen nor will I be following the series.

    "Mixed Review"

    Listened for Fun (Audible)
    Overall Rating: 3.25
    Story Rating: 3.25
    Character Rating: 3.25

    Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

    NOTE: Keep Me Safe by Maya Banks was an excellent thriller but the romance really got in the way.

    I have put off writing this review because quite simply I didn't know how to say what I felt about the story. So I am going to make a list:

    1: The thriller part of the story was very strong! Even though the pacing was a bit off (more on that in number 2), the "case" was solid.

    2: The romance kept getting in the way. I hate to say that about a romance book but this one would have been stronger without it. It slowed the story down.

    My Biggest Problem:

    [ My biggest problem with Keep Me Safe was a scene that happened at the end of the book. Oddly enough if this was a Fringe thriller and that scene was there to prove the "reach" of the bad guy (he basically took over Caleb and made him almost kill her)---it would have worked. However, that scene was two-fold in that it was used to prove the reach/control of the bad guy and then BOOM we are at "I love you". This to me, was the biggest example of how the romance just did not work. Especially after what happened at the beginning of the book, the pacing and placement of "romance" just felt forced because it was supposed to be there. I felt if you wanted to solidify the romance, it should have been separated. (hide spoiler)]

    All of that being said, I like dark thrillers and this was solid on that front. Rating was hard: I liked the book (can ignore the romance) and gave it a 3. If I was rating it as a romance it would have been a 2 but I don't rate based on genre. However, for full disclosure that would have happened if I did.

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated By Jeffrey Kafer / Length: 7 hrs and 16 mins


    This was my first book narrated by Jeffrey Kafer and he was probably the reason it ended up with a 3 instead of a 2. He brought edge to the story and added emotion just where it was needed. I was really impressed! I will listen to him again!

    Final Thoughts: I will continue this series because honestly I want to see what happens!

    "I'm hooked!!! Heart pounding suspense!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Keep Me Safe to be better than the print version?

    I'll listen to and re-read this book for years to come! Although I enjoyed the audio edition the narrator didn't quite have the edge to his voice I would have liked to hear.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Keep Me Safe?

    I couldn't stop listening while Ramie was making her escape from a potential capture. As she was running my heart pounded right along with her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The moment Ramie gave into Caleb and allowed her walls to begin to crumble.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Extraordinary love found in an unconventional way


    Any additional comments?

    What a great beginning for a thrilling series! Maya did it again with a story I couldn't stop listening to

    "Fantastic!"

    I really enjoyed this whole series in audiobook version! I'd read the print books previously and I can honestly say that listening to this narrator made them even better and more memorable! A+

    "I don't know about this one"

    The story was a bit of a struggle for me, it's wasn't the psychic stuff it was all the tragic happenings I mean how I'm the world can you come back from all that. Jeffrey Kafer was great bit it was just so tragic.

    Story
    "Ok But Definitely Not My Fav **Sm Spoiler Alert**"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I might. But if I did it would be with a warning that the story takes a weird, dark twist that they may not like.


    What aspect of Jeffrey Kafer’s performance would you have changed?

    Mr Kafer's narration was ok. I certainly wouldn't pass on a book because he's the narrator. (There are definitely some narrators out there that would make me pass).

    He did a good job with acting out the scenes but the female and male voices are nearly the same. I prefer narrators that have good separation between men and women. If he could improve on that I think he would easily move from the kind of narrator where when you see a book you're interested in, you think, "ok, he's alright" to the kind where you search see what other books he's read .


    Any additional comments?

    I really didn't like that MB had Caleb taken over and made to hurt Ramie. To me it turned the story to entirely unbelievable. I just can't see how anyone would be able to just get over that without at least time to process it, let alone without any counseling. I was really enjoying the book until that happened. I did listen to the end but I almost turned it off because that twist really soured it for me.
